Fragment of a round-topped votive stela with sunk relief and incised texts. At the top is a portion of the wing belonging to a sun disc. Below this are five partial columns of text giving the worshipper's name as "[...] Pasheriensekhmet," along with "His sister, Lady of the House, Chantress of Bastet (?), Tjenenetemhab (?)."

Below the text at the left is the head and shoulders of a male with shaved head. He faces left and wears a wesekh collar. To his right is an oval, which is not the head of the named woman.
